Koh Doc Mai
Koh Doc Mai is an island-sized limestone rock rising steeply out of the sea. On three sides mini-walls drop down to the bottom, while the west side is a hard coral reef slope. This is a lovely multi-level dive and when the current runs a nice drift dive. The east side features lots of orange cup corals, gorgonians, soft corals and a few caverns and overhangs. On occasion sea horses have been observed here. This divesite is often visited on the same daytrips as King Cruiser or Shark Point.
